In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Fraud
In-Home Supportive Services fraud is an intentional attempt by some providers, and in some cases beneficiaries, to receive unauthorized payments or benefits from the program. This fraud can take many forms, but the most common involves providers knowingly billing for services not performed, or providers billing for the care of more beneficiaries than they can actually serve.
